Laredo VS higher trim levels

I took a small vacation last weekend to New Mexico and rented a base 2015 Grand Cherokee Laredo. I am the current owner of a 2015 V6 Overland and was surprised to see many standard features included in the Laredo like the leather wrapped steering wheel and the full LCD instrument panel to name a few. Overall, I would still miss all the options that come with an Overland but I was rather impressed with the Laredo in general. Just a thought.

It is a nice vehicle to get into, agreed. They upped their game a bit recently, allegedly on orders from the very top.

I had rented a V6 GC 2012 and was somewhat underwhelmed compared to a 95 limited. It took a while for my dealer to wash the bad taste out of my mouth in order to get me to upgrade.

Re: Laredo VS higher trim levels

Well, I have a 13 Laredo X package with the 5.7 and love it. From what I can gather I'm just a couple options sorry from being a limited. But I still love it.

Re: Laredo VS higher trim levels

2013 Laredo X Hemi with the 20 inch wheels and Nav has everything I need.
Auto Climate control, heated leather seats and steering wheel, back up camera, voice controls, bluetooth, remote start,
I don't need a leather dash, complicated expensive suspension or a power tailgate.
Added a Borla exhaust and I'm good to go.

Re: Laredo VS higher trim levels

Jeep's TV commercials say Grand Cherokee is the top selling mid-sized SUV here in the Northeast. The Laredo is probably one of the primary reasons as it is a terrific value in this market.

Re: Laredo VS higher trim levels

I would have gone with the Laredo if there was a diesel option available. Had to go with the Limited.

Re: Laredo VS higher trim levels

I am perfectly happy with my 12' Laredo hemi. Navi, leather, hemi, select terrain, tow package... everything I could ever want from a GC. the ONLY thing I would have liked more than what I got was one with the panoramic sunroof.

Yea, my Laredo had the sun roof. But it's not the panoramic, I would love to have that as well
